Sheep and cattle facts for farmers.
About this work
A film made for farmers and stock owners which compares animal husbandry in Argentina and South Africa, partly informative and partly for marketing purposes as Coopers distributed veterinary products and medicines. The first scenes involve sheep dipping at the Coopers farm in Buckinghamshire, England. Sheep are rounded up. Sheep parasites include the sheep ked, the sheep louse, sheep scab (all shown magnified). The sheep are dipped in a bath; two lambs together. At an Argentine estancia, a large flock of sheep is dipped using a long trough. A flock of Angora goats are featured from South Africa; a circular stone flagged bath is used. Next Persian sheep are dipped. Ends abruptly.
